Once a month is the recommendation of most aestheticians, but fitting that into the modern woman’s schedule can be tough. Having treatments done quarterly is very beneficial, too.
Chemical peels are typically used to restore a youthful, vibrant appearance to wrinkly, blotchy, sun-damaged skin. There are three main types of chemical face peels, and each has unique benefits for the skin. The light chemical peel improves acne scars and skin texture, and reduces the effects of sun damage.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a treatment that uses a device with 11 small needles aligned on the outside that then are pushed or rolled over the skin. This may sound extremely painful; however this skin is anesthetized prior to treatment. One that has a fear of needles should not be wary of this procedure the microneedle length can vary from 0.5 to 3.0 mm, which is incredibly tiny compared to a standard needle. These needles only penetrate the superficial layer of skin which creates “micro-punctures” in the skin. Thus, the skin thinks it has been wounded and as a result the skin sends fibroblasts to create more collagen to the affected area. This then causes the skin to thicken and for texture to improve. Other terms used for microneedling are the Dermapen and Rejuvapen.
